Today we drive again for 4:15 hours to Marjangla and set up camp. Get the raft & the gear ready for the expedition. We can walk down the beach and enjoy the great view of this river. Dinner around the campfire is filled with conversation about the coming days on the river.
Day 5: Marjangla – Riga Village Camp
The expedition on the river starts with a few easy rapids and as we drift through the thick forest we get to encounter some good Grade 4s. We set up camp late afternoon on a sandy beach after a good exciting day on the river.
Day 6: Riga Village – Vasang Village
Today we paddle through a gorge which provides some stunning views. Paddle bouncy grade 3 rapids which are the highlight of the day as a lot of small streams & rivers come in adding volume. As we leave the first gorge, we float through the Seppa town to pitch camp on a sandy river beach. Spectacular views of streams falling into the Kameng surround us and we go to bed dreaming of the river and what the next day holds.
Day 7: Vasang – Confluence Camp (Below Bana village)
The day starts with an easy float section as we go away from the villages into the remote gorge of the Kameng, where there are good grade 3-4 rapids before we reach camp at the rivers confluence.
Day 8: Layover Day
Layover day. One can choose to wake up late, laze around the camp or take a nature walk & explore the remote gorge around, sunbathe, bird watch, try a hand at fishing or just lie on the beach & read a book.
Day 9: Confluence – Stamped Camp
This is a great section of the Kameng River as the Bichom River joins it, increasing volume adding punch to the rapids. Here we encounter grade 4 rapids. We scout the river and run it accordingly. Set up camp in the afternoon and rest our aching muscles. This is the most remote section on the Kameng River.

The day on the river has a grade 4 section with long rapids. We raft past the dam site with some amazing ‘full on’ whitewater. Set up camp by a rapid tonight to celebrate the last evening around the campfire.
